Stipe Miocic has taken an unconventional route to share his training routine with his fans! The former UFC heavyweight champion is currently busy preparing for his comeback to the Octagon. Miocic last made an appearance in the cage when he lost his title to Francis Ngannou at UFC 260 in 2021. He was supposed to face Jon Jones at UFC 295 in November 2023, but due to Jones suffering an injury, the bout was scrapped for the event.

He stated, “Even if Stipe looked kind of interested, I would give him a slap in the face. I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’” In Bisping’s view, the prudent move for Miocic is to sidestep Tom Aspinall and prioritize the long-awaited showdown with Jones.
